Nice combination hike of chaparral, meadow, redwood forest, cool rock standings and lime kiln are awesome looking! Tiny little creek is lovely and really just put a big smile of my face although it was pretty heavily trafficked we went on spring box trail and cut off a lot of people viewing which I like :)

Great for someone who wants to hike and also have a long stretch of flat land to run (spring trail). Also, the history the land comes with!! Lime Kilns.
